          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 11, 2016






          Bill  
          Summary:  AB 2017 would establish a program to provide grant  
          funds to public postsecondary schools for mental health  
          services.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           Unknown ongoing costs to provide grant funds to public college  
            campuses (General Fund or other fund source). 

           One-time costs of $240,000 and ongoing costs of $365,000 per  
            year for the Department of Health Care Services to provide  







          AB 2017 (McCarty)                                      Page 1 of

            technical assistance to grantees and to oversee the operation  
            of the program (General Fund).

           Ongoing costs likely between $1 million and $2 million per  
            year for the California Mental Health Services Authority to  
            develop grant guidelines, review grant applications, and  
            provide technical assistance to college campuses (General  
            Fund).

           Unknown costs to public college campuses to put up matching  
            funds to receive grants under the bill (General Fund or  
            special funds). The bill would require public college campuses  
            that apply for funding to agree to provide a dollar-for-dollar  
            match or another match. Depending on the match requirement,  
            and the extent to which colleges could count existing program  
            funds for the match requirement, the bill could impose  
            additional costs on public college campuses.


          Committee  
          Amendments:  Delete the appropriation and require the Department  
          of Health Care Services to implement all the grant making  
          requirements.


                                      -- END --
